Weekend Update – get prepped, this post is a doozy!

So a few weeks ago, I got an email from a friend, Kelly, with whom I went to Elon with.  Kelly invited me, the dog, and the husband-to-be to Fripp, SC, an island off the coast of South Carolina, to relax for the weekend.  The trip was a blast.

So, on Saturday morning, I got the dog up, fed my cat, dragged a very sleepy Austin out of his bed, and we hit the road for 5 hours to make it to our home, which was stunning.

We headed to the beach, ran on the beach, enjoyed dinner, got bikes, cooked, and drank to our little heart’s content.  I made sure to take pics so that you guys could see what we did!

IMG_0913Beach fun as soon as we got to Fripp.  That’s Nate photobombing us in the background.   IMG_0914 IMG_0915 IMG_0916 IMG_0917 IMG_0918 IMG_0919I am an awful dog mom.  I put Coco into the fake gators mouth and she actually let me do it! IMG_0920 (2) IMG_0920 IMG_0921 IMG_0922Then we actually saw a real gator.  He’s a little guy, and he lives in the pond, so I made sure to keep Coco away from the pound.   IMG_0923 IMG_0928 IMG_2549This was our view!  Can you even believe this?

P1160227Party Austin was ready for a good time.

P1160229This was us at dinner 🙂

P1160230I Usually never ever eat cream soups, but since we were on vacation, I figured it was okay, right?  Good call, because it was freaking delicious.   P1160231Nothing would be complete without Austin climbing on something.

P1160233P1160234American Idol contestant Candice Glover lived on St. Helena and worked on Fripp evidently, because her stuff was everywhere! P1160235I ate this with zero shame after we got a few beach cruisers to ride around on.

 P1160239 Bikes!

P1160241Hubs on a bike!

P1160243We didn’t take enough pics together this weekend.


We practiced my new last name.


P1160260We stopped on the way out of the island at a place called Sheldon Church, a historical site outside of Beaufort that burned down.  I literally whimpered on the way out.  I hope you guys had a good weekend, and enjoyed some of our photos.  What was your weekend like?

    1. The weather was gorgeous – we actually wished we could have stayed an extra few days, but I guess we had to get back to real life.

      The weather was so so pretty, we actually were able to run on the beach the first day, and then go for bike rides for half the day yesterday. Can’t wait to go back!

  1. That first gator pic totally had me fooled! I wondered why you looked so calm with your pup in a gator’s mouth, haha. Looks like you had a great weekend!
